Great Ideas for DIY Mason Jar Wedding Decorations

Mason jar projects for wedding decorations

1 – We’ve seen mason jars wrapped in lace, raffia, and burlap. But how charming are these DIY twine-wrapped lanterns from Popper and Mimi? Originally designed for a little girl’s party, these can easily be tweaked for wedding decor or favors by choosing the twine colors and attaching charms with your monogram!

2 – Yes, you can actually simulate the look of mercury glass mason jars! 17 Apart shares a very thorough tutorial on how to ‘antique’ your jars using Krylon looking glass paint and create that mottled silvery finish. Lovely as table centerpieces for a vintage themed wedding!

3 – Something for the woodwork whizzes: mason jar vases mounted on wooden planks. We see a rustic wedding backdrop idea here, or maybe even an escort card or seating chart display (note the glass ‘drawer pulls’ where you can hang whatever you wish)! Clever project courtesy of Shelterness.

4 – This is just about the easiest and most glamorous way to quickly dress up a mason jar! Try it with golden glitter! See the DIY at the blog of Yesterday’s Sweetheart for full details. You can adjust the glitter colors to suit any color scheme from bright fuchsia to sparkly silver.

5 – Want a whimsical way to present your wedding or bridal shower sweets? Try these DIY candy jar pedestals from Living Well Spending Less. Amazing what mason jars, dollar store candlesticks, spray paint, and E-6000 glue can create!

6 –  These sweet fabric-lined votives from Fellow Fellow are created using the decoupage technique and strips of floral-print cloth. And to light them up, battery-operated tea lights! Of course, you can can also use these to hold flowers, candies, cutlery, and the like.

7 – Lovely to give as favors are these homemade candles in tinted mason jars, from Something Turquoise. The candle-making process is great for the crafty bride. But if you find it a bit intimidating, you can opt to make just the tinted jars. They’re so pretty on their own, too!
